This mother is doing its best trying to get her adorable mass of fur into the water. You can see the sea otter point to the water and look back at the pup, and you can just tell she is communicating with the pup to get in that water! However, seems like the little pup doesn't want to go. Just like a human kid, seems like baby otters can also throw a tantrum of their own kind. 

But, at the end of the day, we all know the mother will win and force you into that water. You put up a good fight, little pup! So much cuteness in one simple video, our hearts melt at the sight of this adorable and wholesome family display.

Sea otters! The pup of the sea! Did you know that sea otters can live their entire life without ever leaving the water? What the what. 

They also have the densest fur of any other animal on Earth! Unlike most marine animals, otters don't have any blubber to keep themselves warm. These aww-tterly adorable animals are so cute and cuddly, it makes sense that they would make an excellent meme!

Poor Mishka the otter couldn't breathe after smoke from Washington State wildfires made its way over the mountains and into the Seattle Aquarium.

Luckily, a staff veterinarian noticed Mishka's problem, ran some tests and determined that the otter needed her own inhaler.

ABC details the successful treatment:



Now Seattle Aquarium biologist Sara Perry is working with Mishka to get her comfortable with using her inhaler. Like other training maneuvers, Perry uses food to try and entice Mishka to learn to use the inhaler, filled with the same medication used to treat humans with asthma.

...The aquarium said they are unsure why Mishka developed the condition, which is more common in humans, but speculated that it may be due to reduced genetic diversity in the population since they were nearly wiped out in the early 1900's and had to be repopulated with otters from Alaska.



For maximum adorbage, watch this video that provides more information and shows little Mishka taking her medicine.



Poor little thing, even the otters are being affected by the rash of Western America wild fires.
